Gold (4+) pour with thick, creamy white head;decent cap retention; good clarity; heavy lace. Lite grass hop nose. Semi sweet caramel malt, and very lite bitter hop tongue. Medium lite, almost creamy mouthfeel; moderate carbonation. Overall, easy drinking with lite malt linger.

Sampled Pour from a 16 oz can - no date code. Pours a not-quite-clear brassy orange. Nose presents a bit of orange marmalade and malt sweetness. Taste is malt driven but balanced nicely with moderate hoppy bitterness. Kind of a throw back to what hoppy beers used to be. Not stunning but solid.

This one pours a moderately cloudy golden color with a nice ivory white head that settles leaving a nice lacing down the glass,

The nose is moderate but earthy with notes of grass, pine and citrus.

The taste is a sharp and dry hop experience with the maltiness being completely subdued. The hops are bitter with earthy notes to match the nose.

The moutfeel is pleasantly rich and satisfying.

Overall a very drinkable and strong IPA with the cliche matching that what is in Texas is bigger and this is a big hop flavoring.

Pours a hazy amber color with a thick foamy head. Head retention and lacing are very good. Has an apple and caramel aroma. The taste is bready, highly malted with a mild hop bitterness but overall smooth taste with apple and caramel flavors at the end. Not a bad IPA. It is better than I expect, given the brewery, but definitely not going to break into anyone's top 5.
